Thanksgiving 2017

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday. I was lucky enough to have the day off to spend with my family. I decided to try a new recipe for the first time, and I was very happy with how it turned out. I love searching through Pinterest for just about anything, including recipes. I bought all natural and organic ingredients and made a sweet potato casserole. I cut up and boiled six sweet potatoes. Then I mashed them up and added butter, pumpkin spice, vanilla extract and brown sugar. Once all the ingredients were mixed I placed my sweet potato mixture in a pan and topped it with pecans and marshmallows. I baked this for 15 minutes and that was it! Such an easy and healthy dessert. Cooking is actually a lot of fun, it’s the cleanup that I am not very fond of. In addition to the dessert my mom make turkey, mashed potatoes with gravy, corn, and lettuce.  I really enjoy celebrating Thanksgiving because who doesn’t want an excuse to eat delicious food and think of all the things to be grateful for. After dinner I was so wiped out and stuffed I ended up taking a nap. After that we played some games and things got pretty competitive. We played one of my favorite games called Taboo. If you guys have never heard of this game, I highly recommend purchasing it for game nights.

Today was such a gorgeous day I had to take advantage of the sixty degree weather and do a photo shoot. We found this abandoned train and car and it made for the most beautiful backdrop. I love things that look vintage and rustic and this location was perfect. It was a little spooky at the same time because I couldn’t help but think of investigation discovery and those shows of missing people being found in places like this one. I think I just watch too many of those shows. I am not sure if the place was truly abandoned or part of someones property so we made it a quick photo shoot just in case the owner decided to send his dog our way because I have had that happen during a photo shoot and it was no fun.

The dress I am wearing is one of my all time favorites. The dress is from a boutique called Francesca’s. I love the cold shoulders and the ties on the sleeves. The little v-neck and the cut of the dress are so cute. It’s seriously the perfect t-shirt dress and my favorite part is that it has pockets! I don’t know what it is about pockets, but I am obsessed with them on dresses I think they are so cute. I will have the dress linked below, and it’s on sale! The ultimate must have item for fall are over the knee-boots. My boots are from JcPenny and are on major sale as well. I will have the boots linked below as well. They look amazing when paired with dresses. I love these because they are nude and can be paired with just about anything. I topped the outfit off with one of my favorite statement earring from Charming Charlie’s. I hope you guys get some inspiration from my post. I had a blast shooting this one. Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for reading!
